Having had prior experiences in Malaysia’s Tech and IT private sector as well as a Federal agency, I am confident that Ng will take the digital transformation to the next level and build a strong digital ecosystem for Penang.”

He has worked for leading technology multinationals, including IBM Malaysia and Motorola, as well as MIMOS Bhd, Malaysia’s national Applied Research and Development Centre under the Ministry of Science, Technology And Innovation.

The board of directors express their heartfelt thanks to Yeoh and extend their warmest welcome to Ng.
